https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2020/10/26/trump-christian-nationalism-patriot-church/ Long article from the Washington Post, login may be required. A pastor named Ken Peters is trying to start a network of "Patriot Churches," which will preach "Christian nationalism" in the form of right-wing political screeds. So far he's got his own church in Knoxville, TN and one in Spokane, WA. The Spokane church's pastor is Matt Shea, the former state rep who gained notoriety for his close ties to racist armed militia groups. The churches have been organizing pro-Trump events and railing against Black Lives Matter, vaccines, and mask-wearing. Peters used to lead a group that held church services on the lawn of a Planned Parenthood before a court ordered that they were trespassing. His facebook page shows that he's friends with a number of the anti-abortion activists we regularly discuss here. A couple of choice quotes: Weird thing to worry about when it sounds like your family is extremely powerful and your pastor can say whatever bullshit he likes without the remotest possibility of reprisal! Yikes.
